Playing the game "Two Truths and A Lie" to debunk some old skincare myths that will result in your healthier skin


This post is sponsored by Dove Beauty Bar. All opinions are my own.

Who's ever played the game Two Truths and A Lie? I remember growing up going to sleepovers at girlfriend's houses, and playing that game (and Truth or Dare!) until the wee hours of the morning. I feel for those parents who hosted us, as I'm sure we were shrieking with giggles and kept everyone awake all night long... I was a girly girl, and we'd pour over teen fashion and gossip magazines, talking about makeup and fashion and skincare. From the time I could shower independently, my mom always bought me Dove Beauty Bars. I'm not sure if she knew some of the science behind the product or if she also grew up with them or both. That said, today I'm debunking some skincare myths with that fun childhood game, two truths and a lie. Let's play!


Which one is the lie? Take a guess and I'll tell you near the end of this post so you can see if you were right!

1.      You should cleanse deeply and gently
2.      You have healthy skin when it feels soft, nourished and moisturized
3.      Extra scrubbing and washing is necessary for oily skin


Growing up, I had sensitive skin - I still do in fact. Additionally, I've passed it along to one of my kids. Dove Beauty Bar was the ONLY product I could use on my skin that wouldn't make me break out in a rash or get itchy. I remember learning this lesson the hard way when I took a shower at a friend’s house after swimming. The chlorine from the pool combined with the soap that their family used resulted in flaky, dry skin. I itched all day and was miserable! From that moment on, I followed in my mother's footsteps and only used Dove.


It's no wonder Dove Beauty Bar is the only thing my family's sensitive skin can tolerate - it's made with a quarter moisturizing cream which replenishes skin nutrients  lost during the cleansing process. That means the Dove Beauty Bar doesn't leave behind that tight, dry feeling that other soaps can, which can be a sign of dry skin damage. I know I for sure had that issue after swim lessons at my friend's house! And boy, was that uncomfortable. Here are some other fun facts about Dove Beauty Bar and your skincare:
  •         A recent Dove survey found that 86% of dermatologists report that the “squeaky clean” feeling means your skin might be stripped of the moisture and nutrients it needs
  •         Unlike basic soap bars, Dove Beauty Bar gently but effectively cleanses, leaving soft, smooth skin
  •         Dove Beauty Bar is sold at mass, food and drug retailers nationwide
  •         Dove Beauty Bar is the #1 Dermatologist recommended Bar andthe #1 Pediatrician recommended Bar


Now that I'm a parent myself and have clearly passed along my family's sensitive skin genes, I'll teach my boys to use Dove Beauty Bar, so that they can properly take care of the biggest organ in their body - their skin! Everyone deserves to have healthy, clean skin. And with the price point of Dove Beauty Bar, everyone can, because it's affordable and effective!


Ok, back to Two Truths and a Lie... Did you guess it right? Number 3 was a LIE: Cleansing your skin appropriately once or twice a day is enough to keep your skin healthy, no matter if its oily or not. Dove Beauty Bar creates healthy skin through the mild cleanser formula of DEFI and the signature ¼ moisturizing cream. I can tell you from experience, as a teen with acne prone skin, that over cleansing and over scrubbing did not help clear up my skin. In fact, it just made it even more irritated. Number 3 is definitely a big ol' skincare MYTH.

  2. Yes! I got it right! I have combination skin, but it used to be super oily. Extra washing always made it worse.

  10. Great post!! Spring is in its way and its very important to take a proper care of the skin. Our skin is a very sensitive so it's very important that we should take a proper care. So follow some skin care tips like Apply sunscreen everyday, make sure you're using the right products for your skin. So for that I always like to prefer anti aging solution by dermology as it's fully natural and does not cause any harm to the skin.
